It is now a crime for Australians stuck in India to try and escape the pandemic and return to Australia.

Purportedly this is to protect Australians.


But not those Australians who are in the greatest peril.


This monstrous policy of jailing citizens who want to come home is not only a first for Australia, but probably a first world wide.


The pandemic in India is in an apocalyptic phase and there is real danger of the virus escaping quarantine and causing a breakout in Australia again.


However these measures were not employed when the US, Britain were in the midst of similar troubles.


The people stuck in India are Australians too, and they deserve equal protection from the commonwealth. Or are "new" Australians expected to be treated differently to "Real" Australians?


There are families in deep distress, parents separated from children, and husbands, wives and partners separated from each other and now in the midst of mortal peril. 


Mr Prime Minister, Don't leave them behind.


Put them in quarantine on Christmas island, or in the middle of Australia, figure it out. It's your job. You have an obligation to all Australians.

New or old, all Australians are equal and deserve its governments support especially in the face of a calamity.
